Criteo appoints general counsel
Nasdaq-listed Criteo has hired Ryan Damon as executive vice president and general counsel.
In his new role, Damon oversees the legal, data privacy and government relations functions at the internet advertising platform. He reports directly to JB Rudelle, Criteo’s CEO. Damon started work with the company last month.
Before joining the company, Damon served as senior vice president and general counsel at Riverbed Technology. In that role, he oversaw more than 10 acquisitions that helped grow the company from a single product offering to a multi-product platform organization.
Earlier in his career, Damon held senior legal roles at Charles Schwab and Silicon Valley law firm Gunderson Dettmer.
‘As Criteo enters its next phase of growth, Ryan’s expertise will be instrumental in the continued success of the company,’ Rudelle said in a statement.
‘Criteo is a global pioneer and serves as an industry example of how to prioritize innovation and compliance as the advertising ecosystem transforms,’ Damon said in a statement. ‘I look forward to helping Criteo evolve its business and navigate the legal and regulatory framework in which it operates around the world.’
